Weight Loss Tips for People Trying to Quit Smoking
1. List what you eat for a week and you will lose weight.
Studies found that people who keep food diaries will end up eating at least 15 percent less food than those who don’t. Weekends are the worst: A University study found people tend to eat and drink an extra 115 calories per day on the weekend, alcohol and fat being the main culprits. Reducing calories from spreads, dressings, sauces, condiments, drinks, and snacks can make the difference between weight gain and loss.
Remember! “The longest journey begins with the first step.”
2. Be Honest when Counting Calories
If you are not losing weight, then your probably “cheating” or your not counting your calories correctly. You can download an app for your cell phone to help you become more accurate in “Counting Calories”. Many dieters will only estimate the calories of food, especially if it is one of their favorites.
3. Get a Weight Loss Buddy
Studies have shown that online weight-loss buddies help you keep the weight off. They followed test subjects for 18 months. Those assigned to an Internet-based weight maintenance program sustained their weight loss better than those who met face-to-face in a support group.
4. Weight-loss mantra
Repeat positive thoughts to yourself. “I can lose weight.” “I will get out for my walk today.” “I know I can resist deserts after dinner.” Repeat these phrases and they will become second nature, they will become a part of you.
How to Lose Weight
If you burn 500 more calories than you eat every day for a week, you should lose about 1-2 pounds in that week.
If you want to lose weight faster, you’ll need to eat less and exercise more.
For instance, if you take in 1,050 to 1,200 calories a day, and exercise for one hour per day, you could lose 3-5 pounds in the first week, or more if you weigh more than 250 pounds. It’s very important not to cut calories any further — that’s dangerous.
Studies have shown that people who lose weight quickly are more prone to gaining weight back. It is more beneficial to make gradual changes to eating habits and exercise regiems which you are more likely to continue rather than a “Quick Fix.”
Many health professionals promote, “Tweaking your Diet”which, when coupled with a modest exercise program will yield lasting results. The all-or-nothing approach may produce quick results but these are typically only temporary, resulting in gaining back the lost weight.
The more your mind is aware of what you are eating, the easier it will be to control your calorie intake. This is the Road to Success!
Hypnotherapy Can Help You Control Your Weight
Hypnosis is for anyone looking for help to lose weight and make healthy eating choices into a life-long habit. Hypnotherapy is not for anyone looking for a quick fix. Re-programming your mind to remove problematic thoughts about food takes time.
Hypnosis works because it targets the brain to change the level of feelings, patterns, and unconscious motivations associated with “bad eating habits. Our life becomes easier when we feel we want to eat healthily rather than just think that we should. Used properly, hypnosis will help people naturally feel like making the right choices.
